Rigid Audio has announced the release of Padstation 2, a Kontakt instrument library featuring cinematic pad sounds.

PADSTATION 2 is a dual layer ROMpler with 2 x 400 outstanding and perfectly looped cinematic pad sounds. It features 400 hybrid synthesizer pads like strings, choirs, textures and sweeps. You can blend two different pad presets seamlessly from within one NKI instrument. (All WAV files are stored in a single KONTAKT instrument).

Each part features a convolution reverb with 60 impressive and nothing but “spacey” impulse responses, taken from Rigid Audio´s “AMBILOOP”. To further shape the huge preset library, a centered variation knob can dial in 25 variations (presets) that alter the filter, the envelopes, LFO´s and effects of each part´s preset as well some hidden effects (Rotator, Lofi, Trancegate etc.).
